I have worked for Connecting Threads since 1997. I am the Merchandising/Project Manager. I coordinate getting our patterns tested and samples sewn for photography. I also monitor our website content. This is a great place to work! Quilts and coworkers that share the love of quilting, what more could I ask for in a job?

    Vegetable Medley

    Our Homegrown II fabric, Garden really needed to be put front and center. It was so popular Connecting Threads brought it back. An ideal print for a table runner, Vegetable Medley showcases bold and transfused vegetables for a clearly distinct kitchen-themed design.

    Cornflower Blue

    Taking this project on was a bit of a dare; I was challenged to use our solid Cornflower from the Quilter’s Candy collection in a creative yet innovative way. One of my favorite quilting inclinations is to use a touch of applique with every quilt.  How can I design a quilt using our Solid Cornflower and not use the actual flower?  NOT!  Introducing… Cornflower Blue…

    Spring Into Bloom

    Oh, my, gosh! How I love brights! So, I’ve been carrying around in my head for months this quilt image that is only pieced with bright fabrics with a white-on-white background, and the brights were given ample room so they explode off the white space. I’m so ready for spring and the pick-me-up we get from the sun and beautiful flowers, hence, Spring into Bloom!

    Color Wheel Pin Cushion

    I fell in love with these adorable Pinwheel Pincushions that look like miniature tuffets and now I can’t stop making them! They are so much fun to make and  imagine in all different types of fabrics.

    Meet Judy, Project Manager for Connecting Threads

    I have worked for Connecting Threads for over 15 years.  Like everyone else here, I have a variety of hats I wear in my role. I make sure we are following all of our procedures.  People think of me as the Procedure Police (AKA office nag) because so much of my job revolves around deadlines being met, and projects being done according to plan.  I really do enjoy working here and the best part is all of the great people I get to see every day.  It is always busy and I love it. The time flies when you are having fun!

    Monster Tooth Pillow

      While browsing through Nancy Halvorsen’s darling book, Curiosities & Mischief, looking for quick and easy gifts to make, I saw the cutest little monster! Not just a monster, a usable tooth pillow! There are a lot of great kids gifts in this book but this one spoke to me. I fell in love and wanted to make him.

    Keep Wishing

    Last year when we were asked what we would really like to get for Christmas for our Staff Wish List, I decided to shoot for the moon. I have always heard you should dream big. I really wanted one of the Easy Display Quilt Hangers. They are beautiful and made out of nice quality wood. Well, guess what? I didn’t get it! None of my coworkers bought it for me. Those jerks! Ha ha.

    Crooked Trail

    I certainly love red, white and blue as well as plaids, special weaves and images from nature.  The chevron is especially a favorite as well.  Crooked Trail reminded me of a forest setting, and a "not so deliberate" trail that seems to always recreate itself. Usually crooked, the path is determined by the terrain itself rarely being straight. Also, the peaks and valleys of the chevron design bring to mind hills and valleys difficultly traveled.

    Florabunda

    I love the rich, deep colors found in the Rose Manor Collection.  Reds in shades of wine, with greens of olive and evergreen, complemented by soft cream, antique, mustard and taupe, bring Rose Manor to life!
